2 years ago, Teresa Rodriguez Williamson asked me, "What would you do if you had 6 months to live?"  It got me thinking.  What, if anything, would I do differently?  I started an experiment in living and so began the blog. 

My goal in creating this web TV series is to start a movement and to create a community of people who support and inspire each other in choosing and embracing life and all it has to offer! Each episode will feature a person who is truly living. That person could be 6-years-old or 101, president or cashier at a grocery store, and come from any background. No one is excluded from life!

Most of us have no idea when our time will come, so why wait?  We can enjoy life now.  We can pursue our dreams.  We can LIVE for the present while also planning on the future.  

I have learned so much from embarking on this adventure, but by far, the best part has been the people! The beautiful paradox of life is that we are all unique and yet my global travels have shown me that we also have a great deal in common. We all want to be happy. We all want to be loved. We all ultimately want peace. And in our final moments, we all want to look back on a life that was meaningful for us.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support!  I would like to extend a special thank you to my dear friend, Vanessa Hellmann, and her creative genius for making this pitch video possible and to Jenny for the beautiful photo she took of Matt and Melissa that is featured in the pitch video. Please forward on this link to your community and get the word out! :)

Many heartfelt blessings to all!
